Above the hairpin that starts the stairmaster, the trail is decently filled in. Trail gets more filled in around 3600’. Did left side (if ascending) of the summit loop up and down. No issues on that side of the loop.

Sosman was fairly well filled in, could use a bit more snow. I forgot what a delightful walk through those trees is on the way over to the top of the ski area.

Descended the ski trails back to the hairpin turn. Snow coverage on the slopes is decent; pretty easy to punch through the crusty top layer. Never went more than knee-deep. Too warm today for the snow guns to be running.

Bottom part of the trail was noticeably bonier on the way down. The sun and mild temps ended up doing some work on the trail.
